Healthy Bodies Produce Healthy Brains
If you think I was wrong in the title of this article, I say no; I have done it on purpose. In contrast to the popular healthy bodies produce healthy brains; here I try to say that physical or bodily health is the consequence of balanced mental health.
Healthy bodies produce healthy brains.If you are not in good physical health; mental health is not going to be the most appropriate. Neglecting your healthy lifestyle habits can affect the mind.

But the opposite, and the theme of this article, is also true. If you do not develop habits for balanced mental health, your emotional life will suffer, so you will find a way to compensate for this alteration of your emotions and will be easy prey for drugs, cigarettes, alcohol or excess food. These bad decisions will undoubtedly affect your body health.

Relaxation and rest
The stress affects our beauty and our mood and even makes us more prone to diseases. That is why relaxation and rest are absolutely necessary for the body to recharge energy. Doing yoga or Pilates twice a week helps us focus. In addition, with physical exercise we will rest better at night. You should also avoid bringing work home, as this is our personal resting space. A relaxed person enjoys a better complexion and less anxiety, one of the reasons why we overeat.

Eating balanced is the most important thing, without drastic diets that slow down your metabolism. You have to eat foods rich in nutrients but low in calories such as vegetables, fruit or lean meats. Consuming two liters of water a day helps to detoxify the body and not accumulate liquids. Changing eating habits for healthier food is something that will change our body and our health.
